ABOUT US

 

Welcome to Sunflower Montessori in beautiful Missoula, Montana!

 

We are a small, community-oriented school committed to offering children the highest quality care and education. At Sunflower, we offer a clean, peaceful, home-like environment with a low student-to-teacher ratio. The culture and climate have been thoughtfully prepared to honor children’s natural abilities to absorb knowledge and develop self-discipline. Our specialty is nurturing a child's natural desire to learn.

 

Sunflower Montessori is truly a place to grow!

 

Within our Sunflower classrooms, we follow a structured Montessori curriculum each morning that encompasses mathematics, language, science, geography and practical life. In the afternoon, the emphasis shifts to fine arts, with hands-on art instruction in a variety of media, musical discovery, creative movement, dramatic play and theater. We offer a selection of real-life activities to encourage individuality and free choice for each child.

 

To better facilitate our children’s development, we offer whole and organic breakfasts, snacks, and hot lunches.

 

We educate children aged 2 to 6 years. Both toddler and preschool class lead teachers are Montessori-certified.

 

We'd love to show you our classrooms, and discuss our programs. Please call Sunflower Montessori today at (406)830-3025 to schedule a tour. We can’t wait to meet you!
